Twinkle Twinkle

                                            Brenda Bryant


TWINKLE TWINKLE!

The liner twinkles in the dark.
Soon all the travellers will embark,
Not on a wild and stormy sea,
But on a night of revelry.

THE POWER OF RED

The sleeves of books are works of art;
They play a quite tremendous part
In drawing the eye in the right direction
Instigating a close inspection.
And RED is the colour that leaps right out!
It seems to bully us and shout
'Here is something that you should read!
Here's a book that you really need!'
Is it because of 'blood', I wonder!
Is that the spell we're really under?
Do we think of pain and hurt?
Is that the reason we're alert?
I really like the above design,
But is that because I think 'blood red wine'?
Or is it because of the outlined faces
In the stem of all strange places?
I like to think the designer's art
Has, in some way, played a part,
But I suspect deep in my head
Lies a primeval thirst for RED!

The ship, the water, even the light behind is all bright and sparkly. Very appealing shot.

The power of Red is intimidating, so it has been said. Reds turned out winners in many instances. Happy New Year, Brenda!

Like the cruise ship and revelry. But like your comments on the color red, even better. Red speaks to the deepest parts of our being. Hope your New Year is full of many new rhymes and the red of creative fire,
